My Answer to the Question

I am a hand and forearm girl.
Smart kind eyes with that spark
you recognize when you see it
and then, when it is sadly gone,  forget
until the next one comes along—
that special next one there have only been a few of.


This poem is a quadrille (44 words) for dVerse Poets.

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    That corner of a foto reminds me of putting a van bench seat in the back of Dennis’s truck so you and Bob could sit back there and enjoy the stark raving wilderness of the Klamath and Salmon rivers. And the double rainbow.
